CINEMA: The Lady In The Van
Monday 14th March, 2016 - 20:00€6
It’s the late 1960s and Alan Bennett (Alex Jennings) has just moved to leafy Gloucester Crescent in Camden. No sooner has he arrived than he encounters Miss Shepherd (the excellent Maggie Smith), a destitute and irascible lady of an indeterminate age who resides in her van up the street. When she outstays her welcome with the neighbours, Bennett takes pity on her and allows her to park the van in his driveway, not realising that she will remain there until her death 15 years later.
Director Nicholas Hytner and writer Alan Bennett, whose award-winning collaborations have included The Madness of King George and The History Boys, return for this witty and insightful adaptation of Bennett’s play.
The movie equivalent of cosying up with a warm buttery crumpet in front of the fire on a winter’s day. – Time Out Magazine
